Pirate land is ok but Ocean Lakes followed by Lakewood are our favorite places, as others have said it depends on your preferences as Ocean Lakes seems to be louder and more congested especially in the summer. Lakewood has alot of really nice activities for younger children and they do not force religion on you. Also you need to make resvervations very early at Ocean Lakes as they fill up fast, good luck and have a great time on your vacation.

Pirateland, Lakewood, ocean lakes are all in a row just take a stroll down the beach and look at the difference for your self. Ocean lakes takes reservations 16 months in advance. It's all personal preference just like what RV you own they are all fine. If you own your golf cart, then there is no choice but ocean lakes. My picture is at ocean lakes I like concrete pads myself.

My only argument with Lakewood is they charge you $10 per guest per day. I'm not saying its not worth it but when you have the ocean next to you it does seem a bit high.

If you are looking for the more private campsites and ocean then Huntington Beach SP is perfect. We stayed in Apache Family Campground and had a site with ocean view. Small sites, the staff was terrific little store and nice pier, but we still prefer Huntington Beach SP.

Oceanlakes by far, concrete pads are the greatest. Have been staying there since 2004 except last year (gas was outragious) , we stayed home. They have a good staff but reservations are necessary. We were booking a year in advance and could not always get our choice, really like the H/HH/or I section close to the beach but hard to get. They book a lot of WEEKENDERS which really throws a wrench in scheduling, and they don't care, 1ST COME 1ST SERVED is all that matters to them. We have stayed also @ Lakewood, now you have to send the FULL amount upfront to get a reservation there, 50 % deposit is bad enough, they used to be less than that but got a lot of no shows. JMHO, enjoy your stay, there are a lot of attractions.

Pirateland is great we just stayed there in September. It was our first big outing from md and we loved it. Beach is beautiful and the sites are nice. Get one on the beach side you generally get a hut with picnic tape. Don't pay for oceanfront as stated about the other campground as all that gets you Is a front row seat to he dune. But anything 2-10 spots away is o close to the bevy you will love it. I would advice a rental or toad as there is a ton to do in myrtle so you will want to get out. We are going down in June and over the fourth.

We are definitely taking the toad. We have been down there before but that was almost 10 years ago and we rented a house......also no kids. I am glad to hear the good review on pirate land....thank you.

We love Ocean Lakes been going there since 2010. It is like a small city you almost don't have to leave to get things you need. They have a lot of activities like bingo, tie dye shirts, ceramic painting, putt putt , corn hole, Just lots of stuff. Staff is friendly. On the comment of having to put down 50% deposit, they told me it was because people were booking several weeks to make sure they would get the site and date they wanted and then cancel at the last minute. Have fun when you go and safe travels

If you are Coast to Coast you can stay at the Briarcliff then move to Cypress at $10/day. Classic C2C is one week each and Deluxe C2C is two weeks each. They are both real nice CG and both on the inland waterway but not on the ocean.

I've been to Pirateland twice and never again. The golf cart scene wore thin on me. Noisy permanent resident carts going around trying to entertain everyone with the music they play... all day long...

Did a drive-thru at Myrtle Beach Travel Park and was relieved by the lack of golf carts zooming around. That's where I'll be from now on when I visit Myrtle Beach. Nice, clean washrooms and showers too.
